The most intriguing play of NFL preseason schedule: Tony Romo’s CBS debut

This year’s preseason debut will not occur on the field. Instead, it’s going to unroll in the broadcast booth, exactly where Tony Romo intends to work his first play as CBS’ lead expert during the third week of the 2017 long-awaited preseason.

During Week 3 of the preseason CBS is expected to have two games. Romo will most probably be the number one color guy for the Friday night matchup between the Seahawks as well as the Chiefs in Seattle on August 25. As for the other CBS game scheduled on that weekend, August. 26, Saturday, that’s an all-Los Angeles affair, including Rams vs. Chargers.

The previous year, Tony Romo, substituting for Phil Simms, performed CBS’ preseason midweek opener with No. 2 play-by-play participant Ian Eagle. It makes No. 2 expert Dan Fouts call the second nationally televised play with Spero Dedes.

In fact, there’s a decent probability that Romo will start his fresh gig without Jim Nantz, due to the weekend discordance with the first of 4 tournaments in the PGA Tour playoffs, the Northern Trust. It turns to be the last PGA sports event covered by CBS, before NBC actually closes things out.
